SH2-171 nebula
 We received another “first light” image, taken with the C3-61000 camera. This time it is the SH2-171 nebulosity complex imaged in real (reg, green and blue) colors by Andrea Lucchetti.

The camera was attached to 20 cm f/4.5 corrected Newtonian telescope and despite weather described by Andrea as “poor” and rather short exposure (each of the red, green and blue images was exposed for one hour only), the portrait of the SH2-171 nebula complex looks really nice.
